Hello Curtis. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. When both rear wheels are off of the ground, it is normal for your wheels to turn in opposite directions, due to your transaxles not having positive traction. Will your mowers roll, if you put them in neutral, and try to push them?

If not, them your brakes are likely sticking. You and I can continue from here. Thanks!
